    I am using Vista SP1 and my machine is routed through an Airport Extreme so I can use wireless in my house. Also connected (by USB directly to the Airport) is my HP F380 printer. My wireless internet is working fine. I have downloaded Airport Admin App 5.4.1 for Vista and am able to use it to configure my Airport, but I do not see a way to wirelessly print. I have rebooted the Airport. I also have tried to 'Add Printer' from the control panel and when I search for Network/Wireless/Bluetooth Printers, it searches continually with no results. Please help!

    Wired or wireless printing should be no different, the network doesn't care how the traffic comes in.

    If you can print to that printer from a wired computer, you can print from a wireless one connected to the same router.

    I found that I needed to have bonjour installed/repaired on my computer. when i went to install it, it told me it could repair the damaged files. after that it worked seamlessly.
